Aerospace Quality Research & Development (AQRD) is an aerospace engineering firm and full capability Part 145 repair station in Addison Texas. AQRD strives to do whatever it takes to provide engineering and maintenance solutions that keep aircraft flying and operational for our customers. We believe in putting people first and generating laser-focused results for each customer by forming trusted partnerships. We are available for aircraft on ground support, structural repairs, composite repairs,  modifications, and much more 24/7.

In an industry where original manufacturers have a monopoly on aircraft repairs, AQRD diversifies options for aircraft owners and operators. AQRD was founded on the premise that the Aerospace industry needed more choices for FAA approved engineering and component repairs outside of original manufacturers. The vision of engineering through the eyes of the mechanic, offering turn-key repairs, and creating technical data in house has propelled the company as one of the entrepreneurial disruptors in the industry. Our brick and mortar location allows for maximum collaboration across the company and allows us to produce efficient and dependable solutions for EVERY CUSTOMER. EVERY TIME.  AQRD supports business and commercial aviation clients, hosts multiple fighter jet programs, and operates two airworthy Beechcraft Starships, in which only four exist worldwide.
